Short Stories

Yeah, I do this a lot – ‘biting off way more than I can hope to chew’ – but it keeps me anxious and busy.  It works.  I think.  I hope.  So, bear with me while I get my act together.  Pretty, please …

I remember enjoying creative writing classes and even writing essays for college courses.  People say that I’m a good writer and, dammit, I believe them!  They can’t all be wrong, right?  So, I actually think that writing a short story is more difficult than a novel.  Why do I say this?  Because I have written a novel-length story, but not a short story, at least in a while.  Short stories have to stand alone.  There’s nowhere to hide among chapters; some oozing awesomeness and others dribbling with mediocrity.
